Wheel of the Year Book…All Caught Up

In the past week, I was able to finally get caught up on my wheel of the year book. Below are photos of the past several spreads.

Spring Equinox, New Moon, Eclipse Spread

Below are photos of the two page spread which I made in honor of the Equinox and New Moon. As I wrote about last night, this is very powerful energy and can be utilized to clear as well as manifest major things. This spread represents my intentions. Also, I am including a photo of my Equinox altar. Everything included in these pages as well as the intentions that I set this morning were not just for myself…but for all of you.

Putting The Pieces Together

It’s that time again…the time of the full moon. A time for reflecting, dreaming, planning, creating…conjuring. This month’s moon is a great one to focus on making your dreams come true.  As I do most months, I have done a collage and will share it below. I’ve been struggling lately with the concept of having time to fully pursue my dreams and have a relationship. It takes a lot of energy to do the work that I am doing, and no, that isn’t a complaint. I love every minute of it. It’s just that I have been putting myself out there in the dating world a little and find it difficult to balance things. Especially as I have limited amounts of energy to expend.

So, for this full moon I did a reading for myself and simply asked if I should strictly devote myself to my work. Well…the reading got to the secret heart of my question…which was if I would be able to include romance into my life and still live my dream. Yes, it appears that I can have both. I just need to trust…let go of my worries…and surrender to the fact that I just need to be, without so many expectations. And of the six cards that I drew, two of them were about love of the romantic variety. How about that?

One of the most difficult things for many of us to do it to let go of our expectations…really to get out of our own way…and simply be. If the right person comes along, I’ll know it…because they will fit into my life and vice versa. Yes, that is simplifying but really it is true…the perfect partner for any of us is one with whom we are not only just ourselves, but our best selves. For me, it means finding that someone with whom there is mutual understanding and support. On my end it is my need to create…my need for that space…respect for who I am and what I do. It isn’t that I do not have time for a relationship…it is that I only have time for the right one. The quote about finding people who are your kind of crazy sums it up nicely for me.

What dreams are you focusing on?

And now for this month’s full moon collage:

Creating ~ Full Moon Dream Boards and 12 Nights of Solstice Project

Earlier in the week, my sister came and joined me again in the making of full moon dream boards. This time, I asked if she minded if I took a photo of hers…and she was nice enough to allow me. So, below are photos of her board and mine from this month’s full moon. In addition, I am partaking in Cat Caracelo’s 12 Nights of Solstice Offering for the second year in a row. I love this journey! Each night, she sends a brief email with a meditation audio and some sort of images and/or sayings to get you thinking and more importantly…feeling…your way through the process. In addition to the photos of the dream boards, I am also including a few photos of the cover and first two nights of my solstice project…which is a small book that I prepared for this undertaking.
